This is my neighbour's internet connection according to the chorus website currently... infact the cable runs across the corner of my section

 

 

This is mine (at least until UFB in July August November)

 

 

 

 

Why is the connection listed as so slow on the chorus website?

Chorus recently made a change that shows the actual DSL sync speed (or Fibre plan) for a given address. Have you tried some other addresses to see what they say?

Most show around 8-10 Mbps, except the neighbours connection and one further down the street that shows 2Mbps

 

Just to note the max speed in the area is 8-10Mbps, cant get any higher at this stage. Its just the waiting game for the UFB install that seems to be getting pushed out

Would poor internal wiring account for such a low speed?

Given the rest of the area is 8-10, this is extremely likely to be the issue.

Are those actual speed test images?

We pay for Fibre 100 with Vodafone, but that website says we connect at 10mbps

 

 

 

I tried a colleagues address who has fibre 30 with the same company and it says 50mbps

 

How accurate is this? I'm at work so I can't check

My connection (UFB 200/200):

 

 

My Neighbors connection (master filter, ADSL, UFB order in place):

 

 

People across the road needing a master filter, refusing to move to UFB, Chorus van always visiting due to "internet problems":

Well perhaps its time that the van stops visting them without a substantial charge to them?

Wow. Like ACTUAL sync rates (with I guess a bit if rounding)?
That's quite a nice change for the public info. Will am keeping it easier to show people what the true story is rather than them having to trust pre-quals (which obviously we know are fairly accurate but some people, especially the ones that think they are tech savvy, just don't accept them)

What is the correct way to interpret those diagrams?

 

For the OP's neighbour, Chorus says their max speed would only be 1Mbps, and that is what they are achieving?

 

If the diagram showed Current=1, and Potential=8 then that would point to a possible internal issue?

it shouldn't ever show that because the current speed is as fast as it goes.

 

it might sat 13mbps with a potential of 50, or 200 depending on if VDSL or fibre is available though but that's because its different technology

ADSL2 can reduce speed without a resync and noise margin can sometimes be variable, so its quite common to see a slightly different "potential" speed.
